For new racers, I am posting a link of our most recent NASCAR 13.5 race and I direct you to the 1:12 and 1:45 points in the video to show you WHAT NOT TO DO!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwLvtPpkzq0

First, the incident at 1:12. If you wreck DONT attempt RE-ENTER the race until everyone has cleared. The driver in question waited for 2-3 other cars to pass and then proceeded to take out 2nd place just as he was attempting to make a pass for first place.

Second, the incident at 1:45, when a faster car is attempting to lap you and you are no longer racing for position, please make some room!

Lastly, I have no idea who was driving that black/white/blue #6 car, but it appears that everyone in that race thought he had a bullseye painted on it or something.
yes ed that was a little bruttle race...i remember both those incidents...
i will have to see what i can do.i wouldnt mind racing in the oval race coming up.iwill have to let you know..

Default Photos of RC10L4

I got a couple inquiries so I decided to attach some photos of the L4 Im selling.

Matt, Im sorry but I couldnt wait too much longer - I just bought a bunch of stuff at the TRS and need to sell it now to offset some of what I spent.

I know you guys run some late model bodies in Altoona so I thought I would post a pic of this one. It is for sale for 40 bucks with the body. If interested just let me know.

Thats a nice shell!

Matt, I got a one-way and a set of Jaco Green Tires or my TA05 and I got a new 4 cell battery + front and rear tires for my L4. It adds up quick.

I really like the one-way. I cant say I'm much faster with it in, but the car felt like it was 100 grams lighter with it in. The steering improved a lot, especially on exit, but the downside was that getting into the corners became a little unpredictable.

Dont need a photobucket account. Below your reply window is something called Additional Options>Manage Attachments>Browse and find the file on your computer. I dont know the file limit on pictures..

Default When does the outdoor track open?

I know its in a field but when are practice laps able to be taken? I'm planning on racing this season and wanting to get some practice. How much to be a member? Would a 1/8 scale truck be able to run in a class?

Unhappy nascar

Ed I try my best to get out of the way of you guys, I usually crash trying to move out the way! I must say my car is out to lunch along with my ability so far for adjusting to the speed of the 13.5. With my nerf bar broke early in that race my car pulled all over the place when it was scrubbing my right rear tire. I was constantly looking down at my radio to adjust my steering trim as I had no idea what my problem was with my car hooking till after the race. I should have just pulled it.As to the 1.45 mark Im sorry,I generally try to let the leaders go. I guess I should sit out for awhile and get a better grip on things so I dont get in the way. Sorry again Brian Daugherty

brian,
thats not a good attitude to having...no give up on it.things go wrong without the notice of the driver.trust me i know all about it.
i dont think ed was pointing you out of the crowd.i just think he thought his car was the target for the accidents that did happen.you can ask any of them guys that run oval with the exception of one maybe and im sure that they can help you out with the set-up or whatever you might need.
but dont take it the wrong way....ed is most definately not the type to get all pissed about something like that........have fun with it man and ont let things like that get you out the hobby.....
i remember plenty of times i took peeps out cause of something faulty with the car/truck..........it happens...its rc...unless you have no life.....there is no time to tare into the car after everyweek and see if there busted peices.we all have our daily events that we do and have to go from there....you know what i meen....but yea man its kool....come on back and have some more fun with it...

matt
